Brazilian Wison Silva scored a stoppage-time winner as Gor Mahia were forced to come from a goal down to beat Kakamega Homeboyz 2-1 in a Kenyan Premier League match played at the Bukhungu Stadium on Wednesday.
Gor Mahia came into the game on a back of some poor form that had seen an elimination from the CAF Confederations Cup and going down to Nzoia Sugar FC in the league and things got from bad to worse for them when Chris Masinza gave the Nicholas Muyoti side a 13th minute lea; a goal that was to separate both side heading into the half time break.

In a bid to save the game, Gor coach Vaz Pinto was to throw in Tito Okello for Clifton Miheso to boost his attacking options in the 54th minute and the effect was immediate with the South Sudan international putting his side levelled two minutes later after being pout through by John Macharia.
Gor Mahia then increased the tempo of the game after the home side were reduced to ten men following the seconding off of Thomas Wainaina in the 73rd minute after an ugly tackle on Samuel Onyango who was to be withdrawn later for Jules Ulimwengu.
With Homeboyz doing all they could to rescue a point with their substitutions, Ulimwengu was to see his header miss the target by a whisker but the drama was to be left in the last minute of the game when Brazilian Silva, who had been handed a start in the game, netting the winner in what was his first goal in Gor Mahia colours.
The win sees Gor rise to eighth on the league with 19 points; 13 points below leaders Tusker FC who have played three games more.
